Dear MANS Member Schools, Staff, Colleagues, and Friends:

We are gearing up for the 2018 MANS Education Conference and Expo: Educating with
Passion and Purpose. This is a time for us to celebrate with nearly two thousand faith-based
educators who will come together to share the mission God has given us – to grow
and educate His disciples. The MANS staff and planning committee look forward to
celebrating all the wonderful things that make faith-based education unique and so vitally
important in this world. We hope to see you in Grand Rapids on October 18th and 19th.

The Michigan Equitable Service Collaborative (MESC) has recently launched registration
for a number of the professional development events covered under statewide Title IIA

Each of these opportunities is offered at a substantial discount. Non-public schools will
also soon have access to grant funds to address professional development needs.
Applicants must provide data showing need and develop a plan for addressing the need.
Funds can be used through the summer of 2019. Please take advantage of these new
opportunities available to non-public schools.


MANS Executive Director
